' Sea Mist' oil on canvas 20 x 16 inches.
I am feeling so much better! and have been able to do some more painting. I decided to tackle the big size of canvas after having been doing only small practice pieces for a while now. I kept to a limited palette and then used a very large very soft brush to smooth out the sky. The end result was much more like a watercolour painting with an almost flat looking wash effect! I have also been carrying on with my small acrylic paintings where I build up the painting using lots of very fine glazes. I must take a photo of them soon, I am pleased with one of them. I managed to achieve a subdue lighting and then used a satin varnish to bring out the warm tones. But more on that later!
The sun was shining here today though it is still quite cool, it was minus 2 in Braemar last night bbbrrrr!
Keep warm and happy painting to you all!
